( sanskrit? punjabi? another language? )
It comes from 'सोना' meaning 'gold', which in turn comes from the Sanskrit 'सुवर्ण', meaning the same thing (literally 'good tint'). I'm not sure if it has an equivalent in Punjabi, although I'm pretty sure it is used in Punjabi too. I found it interesting that it is not related to the Russian 'Соня'.
with ण ? maybe from punjabi word सोहणा [soṇā] "beautiful"...?
In Russian "соня" as common noun 1.dormouse ( animal ); 2.sleepy-head,drowsy-head ( about a man/a woman ) ; as proper name - derivative from the name Софья ( Sophia,Sophie)
I think Sona/soniya litteraly means golden. It is used to describe a person whos beautiful, but the actual meaning in goden. However I'm not a native speaker so I might be wrong on this

And then what's the Urdu way to write it? منہ؟
